1973 Friendship Library, Florham Madison Campus, Fairleigh Dickinson University, Madison, New Jersey

[LIB8028] Addressed to Princeton, New Jersey. The address has been redacted for privacy.

Completed in the spring of 1961, the facility was named Friendship Library in honor of the bond shared between FDU trustees and supporters Samuel J. Silberman and Fairleigh S. Dickinson, whose donations made the project possible. Then, Sammartino “gave carte blanche to the librarian as far as books were concerned.” By 1962, the collection had grown to exceed 34,000 volumes. [Website]
